We spend a lot of time talking about how to “get through” a divorce, but what about coming out on top? Is it possible to “succeed” at divorce? The editors at HuffPost think so, and we agree. With the help of an experienced family divorce attorney, you can “win” divorce. Here are a few tips Laura Miolla provides: 1.      Silence your saboteurs. Notice those negative voices and acknowledge them in your mind. Realize that they are trying to create a dark future for you. Once you’re recognized them you have a choice- believe them or choose to put their opinion aside and think positively. 2.      Identify what you want. Too many people go into a divorce just trying to get past it, without taking the proper time to consider what it is they want out of the process. You have a lot to win and lose in a divorce...

  People spend a lot of time talking about how to be happy post-divorce. That includes how to move on, date again, co-parent, etc. But what about the time while you’re in divorce? Unfortunately divorce can be a long process- sometimes it can take years, God forbid. Here are three easy steps Dr. Lisa Kaplin shared with HuffPost regarding the best ways to be happy in a divorce: Think of this as a step in the right direction. It doesn’t really matter who’s leaving who. If you’re getting divorced, it’s for the best. Even if you’re not totally convinced it’s for the best, that mentality won’t help you. Remind yourself that things happen for a reason. Holding onto your ex during the process and hoping that it will turn around will most likely only hurt yourself in the long run. If you have serious resentment or anger, you may truly...

Rarely does anyone walk into a divorce, child custody, domestic violence or child support hearing actively hoping that the judge will uphold an unfair result. In matters of family law, participants generally hope that issues are resolved fairly. However, the concept of what is fair in the eyes of one individual may not be the same as what is fair in the eyes of another. Scientific studies indicate that individuals are ordinarily affected by a phenomenon called the self-interest bias. This bias greatly informs what we perceive to be fair in matters of family law and what we do not. Simply explained, the self-interest bias informs our perceptions of what contributions we have made to our children's parenting, our marriages and our relationships generally. It therefore informs what we believe we deserve in the ultimate outcome of family law disputes. Generally, the self-interest bias causes each person to overestimate their personal...

Foreign law is routinely used in American courts, but in everyday cases applying existing American legal rules related to family law, contract law, tort law, evidence law, and the like. Those American legal rules (such as “choice of law” rules) often expressly call for the consideration of foreign law. Let me offer a few such examples, starting in this post with family law. Consider, for instance, Ghassemi v. Ghassemi, a 2008 Louisiana case. The Ghassemis were first cousins born in Iran. They married in Iran in 1976 and had a son born in Iran in 1977. The husband then came to the United States to study, while the wife and son stayed behind. The husband remained in America, and in 1995 arranged for the son to join him in America. The wife also eventually came to America, and in 2006 she petitioned for divorce from the husband. To rule on the...
